Oh i am a die hard halo fan, I WILL watch it....but seriously come on now.

I feel all this hype really is going to end up hurting the game as everyones expectations are going to be way too unrealistic even if the game ends up being perfect.

That Halo 3 Mountain Dew is selling out like crazy at the gas station I work at.

The hype's out of control, there's ads everywhere.

Should be more ads for Call of Duty 4 imo. ;)

I have yet to see a Halo 3 ad anywhere. Not even a poster! Just every time I go to Best Buy or Blockbuster they have a little pre-order sign. Seriously, I have not seen any "hype" except on this forum!

It's going to be great, try not to worry about the hype.

i mean i really don't care about all the hype i mean what is it doing for you. So there is way to much hype but it still doesn't kill you. And skillful mind who really cares if games are not getting a bigger spot light you sill still get the game and get to play it and thats all that really matters

I don't drink soda (let alone the liquid poison that is the Dew,) but friends have told me it tastes somewhat like melted gummie bears... Which worries me.

Every time I have it, I hear the master chief in my head saying "Sir, Finishing this Fight."

Oh well. Tastes like victory to me.

And victory tastes exactly like livewire

Ya, I've bought my fair share of that soda since it's been out. But not cuz it has Halo on it, I drink it because everytime mountain dew has a nw flavor I love it. The pitch black was the greatest dew ever.

I agree about the Call Of Duty 4. I'm loving that beta man. That game is gonna be so good.

Quick money making idea: Bring two 24 packs (bottles not cans) of mountain dew soda to midnight release. Sell for $2 each. This will pay for your limited edition of halo 3 as the two 24 packs will set you back around $20

If anyone does this on the line I am on I will be rather ticked off

Video games in the infecting the main stream? Who would have thought that would ever happen? ;) Plus if you listened to Mr. Thompson, we are all playing murder simulators! :drunk

But in all seriousness, I have noticed a lot of hype for Halo but it has not bothered me a bit.

Heh, I've gotten pretty used to seeing Halo everywhere I go lately.

On my commute to school, I hear commercials on the radio for the Game Fuel that will let me "Finish the Fight". Then when I get to school I see advertisements for a Halo 3 launch party at the University center. I turn On-Demand on Comcast on, and they have a segment about Halo 3.

The list goes on and on. It must be effective though, because I wasn't really planning on playing this when it came out, but now I really want to. :)

There's already comic books and it taken place between halo 2 and halo 3. I wouldn't be surpise to see Halo cartoon tv then a movie in the future. I saw halo shoes at walmart too.

9 more days, get over the hype, and just play the game. I dont pay too much attention, the only thing that bothers me are all the humongous fat losers at my school who never shut up about it.

That's the Halo Hype for you.

Even when and after the game is released, the hype will still be there. I will NOT be joining the hype as I plan to be one of the last people to buy Halo 3. See you guys next year.;)

I don't care about all the hype, I just don't pay that much attention unless something is eye catching. Personally I like the commercials and really enjoyed the long diorama commercial, granted they'll agree that is is a climatic battle in the war we haven't heard if it will actually have anything to do with the game. The soda/energy drinks, Nascar race, all the other crap I can't think of right now just doesn't interest me. I'm getting the game to "finish the fight" and sure I'll play a few online games but as soon as COD4 comes out my copy of Halo 3 will be shelved most of the time.

I think that hype is what makes a game great and having so much for one single game makes it better, Bungie won't dissapoint all the new features... the game is gonna be amazing.

And about the new Mountain Dew, it tastes like water with a million melted orange sweet tarts to me, thats about it.
